Taylor Swift Urges GOP Senator to Support LGBTQ Equality Act: ‘Think About the Lives You Could Change’

Taylor Swift is imploring Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee to defend LGBTQ rights by supporting the Equality Act. The legislation, which prevents discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, was passed by the House in May and has now moved to the Senate.

Swift shared the request in an open letter on her Instagram on Saturday, the first day of LGBTQ Pride Month. She called on Alexander to “put aside partisan affiliations” and show support for “basic human rights” by backing the bill.

“Our country’s lack of protection for its own citizens ensures that LGBTQ people must live in fear that their lives could be turned upside down by an employer or landlord who is homophobic or transphobic,” Swift captioned the post. “The fact that, legally, some people are completely at the mercy of the hatred and bigotry of others is disgusting and unacceptable. Let’s show our pride by demanding that, on a national level, our laws truly treat all of our citizens equally.”

Swift also criticized President Donald Trump for opposing the passage of the Equality Act.

“I personally reject the President’s stance that his administration ‘supports equal treatment of all’ but that the Equality Act ‘in its current form is filled with poison pills that threaten to undermine parental and conscience rights,’” Swift wrote in the letter. “One cannot take the position that one supports a community while condemning it in the next breath as going against ‘conscience’ or ‘parental rights.’ That statement implies that there is something wrong with being anything other than heterosexual and cisgender, which is an incredibly harmful message to send to a nation full of healthy and loving families with same-sex, non binary or transgender parents, sons or daughters.”

Trump previously panned Swift after she endorsed Democratic candidate Phil Bredesen over Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn in the 2018 Tennessee Senate race.

“Let’s say that I like Taylor’s music about 25% less now, OK?” he told reporters in October 2018.

See Swift’s full letter below.

🌈HAPPY PRIDE MONTH!!!🌈 While we have so much to celebrate, we also have a great distance to go before everyone in this country is truly treated equally. In excellent recent news, the House has passed the Equality Act, which would protect LGBTQ people from discrimination in their places of work, homes, schools, and other public accommodations. The next step is that the bill will go before the Senate. I’ve decided to kick off Pride Month by writing a letter to one of my senators to explain how strongly I feel that the Equality Act should be passed. I urge you to write to your senators too. I’ll be looking for your letters by searching the hashtag #lettertomysenator. While there’s no information yet as to when the Equality Act will go before the Senate for a vote, we do know this: Politicians need votes to stay in office. Votes come from the people. Pressure from massive amounts of people is a major way to push politicians towards positive change. That’s why I’ve created a petition at change.org to urge the Senate to support the Equality Act. Our country’s lack of protection for its own citizens ensures that LGBTQ people must live in fear that their lives could be turned upside down by an employer or landlord who is homophobic or transphobic. The fact that, legally, some people are completely at the mercy of the hatred and bigotry of others is disgusting and unacceptable. Let’s show our pride by demanding that, on a national level, our laws truly treat all of our citizens equally. 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈 Click the link in my bio to sign the petition for Senate support of the Equality Act.

SoulCycle CEO Melanie Whelan: “every set back can be overcome, you just have to change your lens on it”

SoulCycle is launching in London next month, so we headed to NYC to find out what all the hype is about

Melanie Whelan, CEO of SoulCycle
Melanie Whelan, CEO of SoulCycle

Even if you haven’t managed to take an indoor cycling class at SoulCycle stateside, chances are you’ve still heard about it. It’s one of the most talked about brands in the fitness industry and for thirteen years it has been redefining health and happiness through unique mind-body-soul experiences. More than 20,000 people take classes every day and its VIP fans include Beyoncé and Jay-Z, Victoria and David Beckham, Lady Gaga, Michelle Obama and Madonna. It’s a bit of a cult, but at the same time it’s for everyone.

It’s so much more than just an indoor cycling studio. The brand focuses on hospitality and community – you instantly feel part of the family the moment you walk through the door. It has an apparel arm; has collaborated with Nike, Lululemon and Le Labo; partnered with Apple Music and hosted live experiences with The Chainsmokers and Ciara. SoulCycle is a powerhouse that hasn’t just thought about the what, they’ve thought about the why. Its success story is well deserved – I first took a class five years ago in LA and still remember the out-of-body feeling. I can’t quite explain what prompted that moment, but I felt amazing – I didn’t cry but some people do (there’s actually a ‘crying at SoulCycle’ GIF on Instagram Stories). You’ll have to try it out for yourself, and now you can. The wait is finally over for Londoners – SoulCycle is coming to Soho next month.

We headed to New York City to immerse ourselves in this unique experience. We met the riders and the team, including Chief Executive Officer Melanie Whelan. Melanie has been part of team SoulCycle for seven years and has spent four of those at the helm as CEO. Since her appointment, she has driven huge growth and the brand now has over 90 studios in 18 markets. Before joining the company, Melanie held leadership positions with Equinox, Virgin Management and Starwood Hotels & Resorts and she’s been named one of Fortune’s 40 Under 40. We chatted about success, failure and the importance of feedback…

Why is London your first studio location outside of the US and Canada?
We’re huge fans of London and it’s a market we’ve had our eye on for a long time because we know we have a big ridership community there already. It’s such a natural extension of what we do here in New York, so hopefully it will translate relatively straightforwardly with the cultural nuances on top. We’re really excited.

It has been a labour of love for the past few years. We wanted to make sure we had the right strategy in place – we’re moving a team over [to London]. This is a very community-focused brand and we’ve always wanted every SoulCycle studio to feel like the only SoulCycle studio. Everything takes longer than I would like it to, but I think it’ll be worth the wait.

Why is SoulCycle so successful?
It’s the people, all of them. The riders, our instructors, our operators at the front desk. They’re the ones that will say “Kim, I haven’t seen you in a week, let me get you in for a class; how are your kids? What’s happening in your life?” Those personal connections are a big part of our experience. We truly scout globally for the best instructor talent in the world and have a rigorous training programme, so that they know the fundamentals of what it is that we deliver in the room – physically, emotionally and musically. Then we have ongoing training and development, to ensure they are developing their craft and experiences as they go.

Our riders are the ones that make it all happen. They’re the ones that come into the room and bring the energy, they’re the ones that tell their friends and bring more people in. I get asked all the time, why didn’t you launch here sooner? Why didn’t you scale faster? And I always say, this is a curated human experience and and we’re bringing people along the journey with us. We’re not scaling hamburgers, t-shirts or salads. Right? We could just buy more lettuce and make more salads. To keep a brand really special you have to be careful about how you expand and make sure you do it right, not fast.

The SoulCycle studio in action

The SoulCycle studio in action

What is your perception of the London market and how do you think SoulCycle will fit in?
First of all, we don’t really view ourselves in the boutique fitness space, we believe that we are an experiential brand that is community based and hospitality driven. It’s all about you and your experience. Our riders say they come to us at first for the workout, but they stay for these connections – friendships, community and everything that happens in the lobby. I don’t think there’s anything really like it in London and in many of the markets here in the US. There’s no question that there are a lot of boutique fitness operators in this space, but what we do is differentiated and I think we will be a new experience for the [London] market.

Is there anything you’re afraid about?
I wouldn’t say afraid. We are conscious that the market is different, especially from what we see in New York. Our riders in New York will come to the studio in the morning to workout and then they’ll go home to shower before going to work. I think London seems like a more transient consumer – fitness is on their way to work, and so we’re mindful to make sure that we have the right comfortable accommodation for people, as they move through their traffic and daily life.

In every one of the markets that we’ve opened in, we’ve taken a really thoughtful approach to making sure that the nuance of how we operate – from the music that we play to the schedule that we create – is really relevant for that local community and we’ve done the same thing with London. We’ve asked a lot of questions. What music do you guys like? What time of day do you like to workout? How late? And we listen not just before, but then once we open [we ask], is this working? Then we tweak as we go. We’ve been actively listening for a couple of years now and we really understand what the consumer wants. The consumer is changing every day and we will just continue that conversation when we open.

Why is constant feedback so important?
I think it speaks to what we do. We are in the business of human potential, we want you to be the best version of your and we are going to coach you on that ride. We are all works in progress, Marvin (Marvin Foster Jr, head of talent) actually says this a lot – it’s not about perfection, it’s about progress. Is it another turn on the resistance knob, is it a heavier hand weight that you’re picking up, are you running out of the saddle for the whole song? The little accomplishments are just progress up that ladder to who you are.

When I started with Soul we only had 1lb or 2lb weights in the room and most people were using 1lb weights. We now have 5lb, 8lb and 10lb weights, because the riders are stronger so they are looking for new challenges. We’re always adapting and changing, because we believe in progress.

Inside a SoulCycle class

Inside a SoulCycle class

Have there been any failures and how have you learned from them?
How long do we have? You learn as you go and you make mistakes. One of the things that comes to mind from the early days is when we built a new propriety booking system. All our reservations go live Monday at noon for the week. 25% of classes are gone in the first five minutes so this time is a big part of our experience and a couple of years ago we launched a new system but it didn’t work.

We just weren’t ready, we hadn’t done enough testing on the back end. The amount of times I’ve thought, if I could just go back and un–press that button. But you just learn and now every update or change that we have makes us learn and it wasn’t the end the world but it was a rough couple of days. We’ve got lots of stories like that.

Melanie Whelan, SoulCycle CEO

Melanie Whelan, SoulCycle’s CEO, in the London studio

What’s your daily routine like? When do you ride?
I travel a lot for work, so when I’m home I’ll get up very early. I have a nine-year-old and a seven-year-old, so when I’m home I try to be in their traffic pattern in the morning. We do breakfast, I drop them for school and then I ride. I typically ride most mornings. I love, not just the class (obviously the class is an incredible experience), but just being in the studios and being able to talk to the teams and the riders, I just learn so much. We always say you learn more in 30 minutes at the front desk in one of the studios than you are going to sitting at your desk all day. Then my days are pretty much in my office and doing fun stuff. This is a great day. I get to talk about opening SoulCycle in London!

When I’m travelling, for the most part I’m in cities where we have SoulCycle now. That was the hardest part about growing the business was spending a lot of time travelling to new markets where there was no SoulCycle, so I didn’t get to experience it as much. Now we’re everywhere it’s a lot easier, exercise is really important to me.

Do all your employees ride?
We don’t require people to ride but we very much encourage it as part of the employee experience. Coincidentally, right now I can see our finance director and he’s got a bazillion numbers on his screen. Whatever he’s doing is going to be much more contextualised if he’s experienced it in the room. If we’re looking at instructor performance, if he can actually be in the room and relate to Marvin and what he’s doing, then he’s going to think about his work differently. I get asked a lot, do you force people? Absolutely not, but it’s such a benefit of working here, and because it’s what we do, I always encourage people. If you’re having a rough day, go take a class.

Why is the experience element so significant?
This is a place where you come for a physical, mental and musical experience. We really believe that as human beings we are so over-stretched right now – anxiety is at an all-time high and you are on it 24 hours a day. If you’re not reading an email then you’re posting something on Instagram and we enable you to park that noise for 45 minutes, to go inside your head, listen to great music or push yourself physically.

Yes, our instructors coach you to turn up the resistance, but you are stronger than you think you are and that’s actually not about the bike at all, that’s about you and your life. That is what SoulCycle really means – it’s not about cycling really at all, yes you do that here and really, it’s a great workout, but what really keeps people connected to this is the sense of community, inspiration, personal development and self-accountability to be a better version [of yourself] tomorrow.

What’s your superpower?
Relentless positivity. I fundamentally believe that the glass is always half full and my personal mantra is ‘we figure it out’. It’s not about finding the direct yes, there are some things that can’t be fixed but there is another solution that we can find, in a different way. Every set back can be overcome and you just have to change your lens on it. It’s hard to do, but you can train your brain that way.

You’ve mentioned having a millennial mentor before, how does that work?
I view it very much as a two-way street. I had a long conversation with my friend last night about her career and a decision she is trying to make. She thanked me for mentoring her and I found myself coaching her in the conversation, in a way that I was actually hearing in my own head for my own self. I think mentoring goes in all directions and is something I feel very passionate about, especially as a female leader. I think we need more strong female leaders in the world so bringing women up behind me is really important.

My millennial mentor is a young woman who is also my go-to for trend spotting, because I’m a mum of two kids who travels for work and works a lot, so I like to go out in the world to see what’s cool, what’s happening and what a different generation is spending time on. It’s as much about career mentoring as it is about trend mentoring, cool hunting, understanding consumption patterns of a different generation, many of whom are our consumer, so that kind of activity is really important.

What would your advice to your younger self be?
Don’t take it all so seriously. I think we all think when we’re young we need a plan, and we have to executive the plan by a certain point. The truth is that life is a jungle gym – it is not a ladder and you are going to go up to go sideways, to go back to go three steps further. Just relax, because the journey is a lot of fun if you let it be and often sometimes things are going to take care of themselves. Not every day is going to be great and that’s okay too.

SoulCycle’s first London studio will open on 14 June at 3-4 Great Marlborough Street.

USPS change of address scam: How to spot and avoid it

USPS change of address scam: How to spot it

If you’re relocating into a new apartment or home, you need to be aware of a relatively new version of an old scam that targets homeowners in transition.

The U.S. Postal Service change of address scam takes advantage of people trying to change their address online, something that can easily be done for free by filling out a form provided by your local post office.

Don’t fall for this USPS change of address scam

Here’s how the scam works: Fake websites use landing pages and other means to direct you to sites that look similar to the official post office site.

Because people don’t know how much it actually costs to do a USPS change of address (nothing or next to nothing), they’re easily scammed.

Here’s the thing: Some third-party sites do indeed provide change of address forms online, but they’re charging you ridiculous money, sometimes up to $ 80.

Googling how to change your address with the USPS won’t necessarily ensure your online safety. The first search result when we tried it has gotten a number of complaints from people feeling deceived due to being overcharged.

How much does the post office charge for a change of address form?

At most, the Postal Service charges $ 1.05 to change your address online. The reason we say “at most” is because you can even avoid that fee if you download form and complete it yourself or simply walk into a post office and fill one out. USPS only charges that $ 1.05 to verify that you actually are who you say you are when you request the change.

The official USPS webpage for customers who want to change their address online is USPS.com/move.

Bottom line: If you go online for a USPS change of address form and are asked for more than a buck and change, you’re being ripped off.

Do You Have A High School Student? Here’s A Program That Can Help Change Their Life.

Disney Dreamers

When invited to cover the Disney Dreamers Academy hosted by Steve Harvey and Essence Magazine, I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect. I haven’t been to Disney since I was in high school and I didn’t think I would get caught up in all the “magic.” Boy, was I wrong. The weekend ended up being inspiring, enthralling, and yes, magical.

First off: Disney holds nothing back in helping the high performing kids in attendance dream even bigger. The program is hosted over a weekend, with kids arriving on Friday and leaving on Sunday. The weekend is jam-packed with events, but the best part is that their all in the interest and the betterment of children. Each year, Disney and Essence chooses 100 kids to come for the inspiring weekend. The kids are allowed to bring one parent or chaperone for the event (yes, all of their amenities are covered as well).

Upon arrival, I dropped my things off and immediately rushed to a luncheon followed by a press conference where Tracey Powell, Vice President, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts and DDA Executive Champion gave opening remarks along with Michelle Ebanks, CEO of Essence Communications who explained what would occur over the weekend. Disney Dreamer Alumni also spoke to get current Dreamers excited for the weekend.

Disney is all about the magic and even if you think you’re not going to feel it, they will make sure you do! There is a daily parade at the Magic Kingdom and Disney organized to let the Dreamers’ lead it. Very cool and exciting for the kids. Afterward, the kids have an option to go to a Deep Dive. Deep Dives happen throughout the weekend with the kids being able to explore area of interests and connect with experts and leaders in that field.

In addition to Deep Dives, the weekend also consists of a lot of motivational speaking. Princeton Parker, Mikki Taylor, Lisa Nichols, Yolanda Adams and more poured words of strength, encouragement and love into the students. I surveyed the room and you could just see the kids sitting straighter, off their phones, and minds turning. The greatest part is that a lot of these speakers are returning speakers. Mikki Taylor helped found the program and Lisa Nichols also spoke to the students last year.

Of course, kids don’t just want to hear from adults, so the Dreamers’ Academy also brought in Black-ish stars Marcus Scribner and Miles Brown to talk about how they deal with balancing their dreams, enjoying being kids throughout the fame, and more.

In an interview with Steve Harvey. We discussed how the program had evolved. He reflected on past years and how he had met so many parents that had “poured everything into their children and forgotten about their own dreams.” Harvey admitted to being a “big dreamer” and still dreaming at 62, so he found it important to also make sure that parents were still doing the same. There were organized “Parent Tracks” to allow parents time to reflect, learn, and grow. The whole event felt like a family reunion. There was a family dinner and on Sunday, the commencement felt more like a Sunday church service.

Yes, throughout the busy weekend there is still time to enjoy Disney and all the parks. It’s a lot of work and character building, but also an equal amount of magic and play. The event is diverse, with kids of all races and a range of high school ages in attendance. This is like a hyped up summer camp and after speaking to Dreamer Alumni, they still keep in touch with people from their cohort.

If your kid or a high schooler you know is looking for an opportunity to ensure their future is bright, encourage them to apply to Disney Dreamers Academy. I wasn’t even a part of the program and left incredibly inspired by the students!

How ‘Medicare for All’ Could Mean Change for Everyone

Through Medicare, the government health-insurance program created in 1965 to help older Americans afford their medical bills, the U.S. helps one in five of its citizens pay for doctor visits, blood tests, prescription drugs, stays in hospitals or nursing facilities, and hospice care. Why not offer those benefits to everybody? “Medicare for All” has emerged as a rallying cry among Democrats in the early stages of the 2020 U.S. presidential campaign, though it means different things to different people.

1. Who can get Medicare now?

About 85 percent of Medicare’s 59.7 million members are eligible because of their age — 65 or older. The rest are eligible because they have permanent disabilities. Beneficiaries are responsible for paying premiums, deductibles and other out-of-pocket costs, and most purchase some type of additional coverage to help with services that aren’t covered, such as long-term care, dental and vision treatment, and hearing aids.

2. What would Medicare for All mean?

That depends on who’s talking. Generally speaking, it suggests an end to the dominance of private health insurance in the U.S., in favor of either a government-run “single-payer” system, such as Canada’s, or a government-provided alternative to private insurance plans that Americans could buy into, an idea known as the “public option.” Less-drastic offshoots of the idea envision lowering the Medicare eligibility age to 50 — Medicare for more, rather than Medicare for All.

3. Which politicians support which proposals?

Senator Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent who is again seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, continues to advocate for a fully government-run and government-financed system that would abolish most private insurance plans. Self-described progressive Democrats in the House of Representatives also favor a government-run single-payer system. That group includes Pramila Jayapal of Washington, who has offered specific legislation, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York. Other Democrats vying against Sanders for the party’s 2020 presidential nomination are split (or fuzzy) over whether they would do away with most private insurance or, rather, seek more modest steps toward government-provided health care. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s focus on more modest steps toward insuring more Americans is an attempt to keep the party from fracturing over the issue.

4. Would Medicare for All change everybody’s health care?

It might, depending on the plan. The most expansive visions of Medicare for All, like those of Sanders and Jayapal, would establish universal benefits through a government-run program and outlaw most forms of private insurance, including employer-provided coverage. That might mean little if any out-of-pocket cost to patients, but also less choice for people who want to purchase specific types of benefits and for employers who use them to attract workers. Under a public-option plan, people satisfied with their insurance and medical care would have more flexibility to keep it.

5. How much would it cost?

The Congressional Budget Office, the provider of official cost estimates, hasn’t weighed in on any of the proposed plans. A study from the libertarian Mercatus Center said Sanders’ 2017 single-payer bill would raise federal spending by $ 32.6 trillion over 10 years; an earlier report by the nonpartisan Urban Institute reached a similar figure. (To pay for that, sponsors have floated ideas like raising taxes on the wealthy.) But the current system has costs as well. The U.S. spent $ 3.5 trillion on health care in 2017, or roughly $ 11,000 for each American, and is projected to spend about $ 47 trillion on health care between 2018 and 2027 (adding up what the government, employers and households pay). Today about 18 percent of gross domestic product goes to medical spending, a far greater share than most peer countries.

6. Would Medicare for All cut health-care costs?

That’s a matter of debate. Proponents say it would allow the government to limit costs by setting prices and eliminate the administrative burden of private health insurance. Critics argue that would remove the incentives private purchasers of health care have to steer their dollars toward more efficient, innovative suppliers.

7. Do Americans want Medicare for All?

That changes with how the question is phrased. In a January poll by the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, 74 percent of those surveyed supported “creating a national government-administered health plan similar to Medicare open to anyone” if that meant people could choose to keep the coverage they already have. Support dropped to 56 percent if it meant “all Americans would get their insurance from a single government plan” and to 37 percent if it would “eliminate private health-insurance companies.”

How Several Mini Walks A Day Can Change Your Life

benefits of walking a lot

Source: Mattia / Getty

I don’t go to the gym and am pretty open about that. When I tell people that, they always ask, “So how do you stay so slender?!” (And, yes, it does make me blush—so what?) I’m not going to lie and say that I heat junk food all day and live a stationary lifestyle. That just isn’t true, and would be an irresponsible lie. I’ve always been big on walking. I go for three to four 15 or 20-minute walks a day. I can’t be without my walks. If life gets really hectic and I skip my strolls, I feel the negative effects quickly. If the boring old gym routine of pounding away on a treadmill has been getting you down, or you’ve just been looking for a new way to spend your lunch breaks, I can’t recommends taking up more walking enough. Here are ways taking several mini walks a day can change your life.

You’ll clear your head

Have you ever noticed that, after going for a walk, you see things more clearly? Maybe that issue you’ve been mulling over for days seems much easier to tackle. Maybe you come up with a more diplomatic way to address that issue with a coworker (you know, the one you were just going to yell at). Walking has a way of removing the cobwebs from our minds, dispersing frustration and anger, and helping us see things clearly.

Remember them? The nominees? The films and the actors meant to be debated, rewarded, and to spark conversation about our current cultural moment?

This Olympic Champion’s Case Could Change Sports’ Gender Rules Forever

(LAUSANNE, Switzerland) — The longtime standoff between Olympic champion Caster Semenya and track and field’s governing body over issues of gender, hormones and performance in sports reached a pivotal phase on Monday as a key tribunal began hosting a planned five-day hearing in a case that could have massive repercussions throughout sports.

The two-time 800-meter gold medalist from South Africa came and went from the offices of the Court of Arbitration for Sport on Monday without addressing reporters after a marathon opening session, but her legal team and IAAF lawyers were still jockeying for position in the court of public opinion.

Both sides acknowledged that the ruling in the case — which isn’t expected until late March — could have huge implications, notably over where to draw the line between the genders and how to ensure fairness in top-tier competition.

Semenya’s lawyers issued a statement during the 10-hour session criticizing the IAAF’s release of a list of names of five experts that they planned to put forward to make their case. Her legal team said that maneuver violated the spirit of confidentiality over the proceedings “in an effort to influence public opinion.”

Her team of four lawyers said that it had received the three-judge panel’s OK to release the names of its own experts on Tuesday.

Insisting on the need for fairness, the IAAF defended “eligibility standards that ensure that athletes who identify as female but have testes, and testosterone levels in the male range, at least drop their testosterone levels into the female range in order to compete at the elite level in the female classification.”

The IAAF has proposed eligibility rules for athletes with hyperandrogenism, a medical condition in which women may have excessive levels of male hormones such as testosterone. Semenya wants to overturn those rules.

The scheduled five-day appeal case is among the longest ever heard by the sports court. CAS secretary-general Mathieu Reeb expressed hope for a decision by the three-judge panel by the end of March.

Neither of the delegations spoke on the way out of Monday’s proceedings.

“The core value for the IAAF is the empowerment of girls and women through athletics,” IAAF president Sebastian Coe said as the day began. “The regulations that we are introducing are there to protect the sanctity of fair and open competition.”

A colleague then pulled Coe away from reporters and said he wouldn’t say more.

The IAAF wants to require women with naturally elevated testosterone to lower their levels by medication before being allowed to compete in world-class races from 400 meters to one mile.

Reeb said the case was “unusual and unprecedented” and said the decision “will be important.”

South African lawyer Norman Arendse, whose is helping present the case for Semenya, called it “a highly confidential process.”

Frozen 2 trailer reignites fan frenzy with hints of new songs, messages about climate change and maybe Disney’s first gay princess

FANS of the £1billion Disney blockbuster Frozen are ready to Let It Go again.

In case you somehow missed the global frenzy the first time round in 2013, the musical tale of Snow Queen Elsa and her fearless sister Anna became one of the highest grossing animated movies ever.

Fans of Disney's Frozen are excited for the sequel after the release of the new trailer

This week saw the release of the first two-minute trailer for the sequel, which notched up more than 116million views in 24 hours.

Frozen 2 will not be out until November, yet social media is buzzing with speculation.

Kate Jackson takes a look at the frosty phenomenon and what to expect from the sequel . . .

The £1billion phenomenon

NOT since Star Wars has a movie dominated the toy market in the way Frozen has, with Elsa dolls out-selling Barbie.

Disney is estimated to have been shifting a billion dollars-worth of Frozen related products in both 2014 and 2015.

In the US there has been £430million worth of Frozen dolls sold

Elsa doll sales, like the soft toy below, were worth £430million in the US alone.

And the blue evening dress worn by Elsa as she sings power ballad Let It Go is Disney’s all-time best-selling costume — with Anna’s outfit in second place.

Children were named after the tormented ice queen, merchandise spun out of control and Let It Go was belted out in homes and playgrounds across the world.

In Britain, 1.45million DVDs were sold in the first three weeks after the film’s release in 2013 and the Frozen Snow Glow Elsa doll became the most popular Christmas toy.

The original movie cost £117million to make and Disney is estimated to have shifted over a billion dollars worth of merchandise

It didn’t stop there, a year later merchandise continued to increase tenfold, and was still going strong in 2016.

Fans could buy everything from Frozen chairs to ride-on toys cars, board games and backpacks.

And it was Elsa and Olaf, the naive snowman, who were shifting the goods, rather than the film’s heroine Anna.

On top of that, the icy tale proved to be the biggest-selling DVD of this decade, shifting more than three million copies in 2014 alone.

The original Disney movie cost £117million to make and went on to be the highest grossing animated film of all time, taking $ 1.287billion. It won two Oscars — Best Animated film and Best Original Song — plus a Golden Globe and a Bafta.

However, Spencer Lacey Ganus — who played teenage Elsa — earned just £600 for her one-day of work. She ended up with ten times that from royalties.

New viewers (if there are any) start here

INSPIRED by Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen, Frozen is a fairy tale for the modern era, with fierce princesses Elsa and Anna as the heroines.

In the original movie the kingdom of Arendelle is trapped in an eternal winter after princess Elsa’s incredible powers are unleashed following her coronation as Queen.

Elsa flees, and her sister Anna, her new friend Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven and naive snowman Olaf set off to persuade her to end her self-imposed isolation and save her homeland.

Meanwhile, the Duke of Weselton schemes to take control of Arendelle by getting rid of both Elsa and Anna.

Elsa is able to conquer all – but only by letting go of her fear.

Where STAR they now?

KRISTEN Bell: Anna

Before voicing heroic princess Anna, Kristen, 38, had appeared in US comedies Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Couples Retreat.

The mum of two, who is married to actor Dax Shepard, had dreamed of being in a Disney animation since she was four.

She said of the movie’s success: “When we were making it, there was a part of me thinking, ‘This is really, really special’.”

Idina Menzel: Elsa

As Frozen brought global fame, Glee actress Idina was dealing with a divorce.

The New Yorker, 47, was balancing the glamour with going to “mediation with my ex, figuring out which days he was visiting our son and the sadness and regret.”

When asked a couple of years ago if her son, now nine, was excited about Frozen 2, she admitted: “He doesn’t give a s***.”

Jonathan Groff: Kristoff

While voicing Kristoff the Broadway actor was also filming the American TV series Looking, in which he got to have raunchy scenes with History Boys actor Russell Tovey.

On stage in 2015 he played King George III in Hamilton, which earned him a Tony Award nomination.

Jonathan, who stars in Netflix crime drama Mindhunter, describes Frozen as “like crack for children”.

Josh Glad: Olaf

The voice of the world’s most famous snowman grew up in sunny Florida and didn’t see snow until he was 15.

Prior to Frozen, the 37-year-old played tech icon Steve Wozniak in the film Jobs and more recent movies include Murder On The Orient Express and Beauty And The Beast.

The dad of two said: “If I had to be remembered for one character, Olaf would be fine.”

The trailer clues

THE teaser has a dark, fearful tone, starting with Elsa running across a rampaging sea, which many fans have interpreted as her being trapped on a mystical island.

The girls are wearing new combat-style outfits and Anna is wielding a sword, which some have likened to a superhero movie.

Disney

Many fans think that the new film will have underlying messages about climate change after Elsa is seen trying to freeze an ocean[/caption]

And rather than winter, it seems to be autumn — although this may not be in their native Arendelle.

Writer and director Jennifer Lee said it will be “bigger, more epic” than Frozen, adding: “They’re going to go far out of Arendelle.”

While most fans have been poring over the trailer, they should be paying more attention to the poster.

Josh Gad, the voice of snowman Olaf, tweeted: “If you look hard enough, this teaser poster will reveal quite a few surprises (like how pretty a snowflake is up close).”

There is speculation that it is set in a different land as we can see an autumnal forest rather than the snowy scenes of Arendelle
There is speculation that it is set in a different land as we can see an autumnal forest rather than the snowy vistas of Arendelle

There has also been speculation that Frozen 2 could send a message about climate change.

In the trailer, Elsa is either trying to reduce the temperature of the sea as she crosses it or she may simply be freezing it so she is able to walk across it.

It could, though, simply be that this story takes place during a different season or that the characters are in a different land.

The other problem with the climate change theory is that Frozen is clearly set before the industrial revolution, so any rise in the Earth’s temperature is unlikely to have been made by humans.

The new songs

THERE were two versions of mega-hit song Let It Go in the original movie – the empowering one sung by Elsa as she refuses to hide her secret powers any more, and a pop version by Demi Lovato at the end credits.

The song Let It Go won a Grammy and an Oscar, and sold more than ten million copies in 2014, making it the year’s fifth best-selling song.

AP:Associated Press

Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez have promised at least seven new songs for Frozen 2[/caption]

Husband and wife team Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez have promised at least seven new songs.

Director Jennifer Lee reckons one could rival Let It Go’s success. She said in November: “We have a new song that I think is an evolution. It’s our own song. Bobby and Kristen just delivered it three weeks ago. We’ve been working with them for two years and this song just came and I love it.”

The snowflake

THERE is just one bold image on the new movie’s official poster – this snowflake-like formation with four diamonds.

Each diamond contains a different symbol inside it, and fans have speculated that they might stand for the four elements of earth, water, air and fire. Or perhaps, for the four seasons.

Others suspect the four diamonds might stand for four kingdoms, and that the snowflake’s eight points might hint at more princesses.

The new characters: could we have Disney’s first gay princess?

BLINK and you’ll miss them but two new characters are glimpsed in the Frozen 2 teaser — a redhead female and a blonde figure, who is blown upwards in a pile of leaves.

Some fans reckon they could be Anna and Kristoff’s children, even though the pair haven’t aged.

Some think that the film could break new ground and feature Disney’s first ever gay princess after many fans campaigned for Elsa to have a girlfriend

Could these be voiced by the new cast members, Westworld star Evan Rachel Wood and Black Panther actor Sterling K Brown?

Not even respected movie website IMDB knows what their characters names will be in Frozen 2 — yet.

An alternative theory is the sequel will glow under the LGBT rainbow.

Some eagle-eyed viewers spotted a scene with an unknown character being blown upwards in a pile of leaves

There is a twitter campaign titled #GiveElsaAGirlfriend, where lesbian fans have pleaded with the writer to have the heroine fall in love with a woman.

Idina Menzel, who plays Elsa, gave the idea her support, saying: “It would be a great thing.”

Writer Jennifer Lee was also very aware of the drive and said: “We have tons of conversations about it and we’re really conscientious about these things.”
